King Obama bombed six nations last week

Obey Your King

  • Last week King Obama ordered air attacks on two continents. - Asia and Africa. Congress has totally abandoned the Constitution and ceded the power to make war to whatever elected King-of-the-Moment happens to occupy the White House.

(Washington Post)  -  While Americans savored the last moments of summer this Labor Day weekend, the U.S. military was busy overseas as warplanes conducted strikes in six countries in a flurry of attacks. 
The bombing runs across Asia, Africa and the Middle East spotlighted the diffuse terrorist threats that have persisted into the final days of the Obama presidency — conflicts that the next president is now certain to inherit.
"The power to declare war, including the
power of judging the causes of war, is fully
and exclusively vested in the legislature."

James Madison
In Iraq and Syria, between Saturday and Monday, the United States conducted about 45 strikes against Islamic State targets. 
On the other side of the Mediterranean, in the Libyan city of Sirte, U.S. forces also hit fighters with the militant group. On Sunday in Yemen, a U.S. drone strike killed six suspected members of ­al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. 
The following day, just across the Gulf of Aden in Somalia, the Pentagon targeted al-Shabab, another group aligned with ­al-Qaeda. The military also conducted several counterterrorism strikes over the weekend in Afghanistan, where the Taliban and the Islamic State are on the offensive.
Nowhere are the unexpected turns of Obama’s foreign-policy record more visible than in Iraq, where thousands of U.S. troops returned after the 2011 withdrawal to support local forces’ battle against the Islamic State. A smaller Special Operations force is based in northern Iraq, responsible for hunting down militant leaders.

U.S. warplanes conducted about 20 strikes in Iraq over the weekend . . . . In Syria over the weekend, more than 25 strikes.

Congress Hides Under Their Desks

Both liberal Democrats and so-called "small government" Conservative Republicans are hiding under their desks frightened to death that they might actually have to publicly debate and vote on a proper and legal declaration of war in Syria or in other nations. 
Without a vote of Congress, King Obama has made unconstitutional wars on Libya, Yemen, Somalia, Syria and now in Iraq.
